Departmental Membership

Departmental Membership is recommended when there is a group of people in an organisation who are, or who wish to become members of the Design Society.

DS Departmental Members have all normal membership rights: full access rights to the website, discounts on DS events and full voting rights at meetings.

How it works

The organisation taking out the Departmental Membership notifies the DS of the number of Full Members and/or Associate (Student) Members that they wish to include in the membership. A discount on membership fees is given according to the number of FULL members (see costings below). The DS Administrator invoices the organisation annually for the cost of the membership.


  • 10% discount on 1- 9 full Departmental members
  • 20% discount on 10 or more full Departmental members
  • Associate Membership is not discounted

Please contact Design Society Administration to arrange details. Contact at designsociety dot org.

Please note, as of 1st July 2017, the minimum number of members in a Departmental membership is 5 members, with at least one of these members being a Full Member.
